Toss Gujarat Giants chose to bat vs UP Warriorz

Gujarat Giants captain Beth Mooney won the toss, and as has been the trend in the Delhi leg, elected to bat in what is a must-win game for her team against UP Warriorz.

“Been working for us, the last couple of games. Batting first seems to come to fruition for us,” Mooney said of her decision at the toss.

Giants will be hoping to make a comeback after a heart-breaking loss against Mumbai Indians two days back. They made one change to their playing XI from that game, bringing in left-arm spinner Mannat Kashyap in place of vice-captain Sneh Rana.
Warriorz captain Alyssa Healy wasn’t too fussed about the toss in what is their last game of the WPL 2024 group stage. They made two changes to the side that beat Delhi Capitals in a thrilling game last Friday, with Chamari Athapaththu coming in for Tahlia McGrath, who is unwell. Left-arm seamer Anjali Sarvani also found a place in the XI, as she replaced left-arm spinner Gouher Sultana.
Warriorz have never lost to Giants in the WPL, having won each of those games while chasing. The last time these two sides met was in the Bengaluru leg, where Grace Harris’ 33-ball 60 helped Warriorz chase down a 143-target with 26 balls to spare.

A win in Delhi will take Warriorz ahead of Royal Challengers Bangalore on the points table, while a loss for Giants will end their hopes of making it to the playoffs.

UP Warriorz: 1 Alyssa Healy (capt, wk), 2 Kiran Navgire, 3 Chamari Athapaththu, 4 Grace Harris, 5 Deepti Sharma, 6 Shweta Sehrawat, 7 Poonam Khemnar, 8 Sophie Ecclestone, 9 Saima Thakor, 10 Rajeshwari Gayakwad, 11 Anjali Sarvani

Gujarat Giants: 1 Laura Wolvaardt, 2 Beth Mooney (capt, wk), 3 Dayalan Hemalatha, 4 Phoebe Litchfield, 5 Ashleigh Gardner, 6 Bharti Fulmali, 7 Kathryn Bryce, 8 Tanuja Kanwar, 9 Meghna Singh, 10 Shabnam Shakil, 11 Mannat Kashyap
